I was so happy these little creatures made an appearance on an episode of the Cosmos! I love these things! They look like little potatoes with legs :) Totes adorbs, ya'll! I was first introduced to them in my biology class a few years ago and I was just infatuated with them.They aren't just cute either, they are super amazeballs. They can survive IN SPACE for crying out loud. I was probably annoying my husband during the show because even after they were done talking about the water bears, I would answer all of Neil Degrasse Tyson's questions with:
MEGA Water Bear???
All the water bearrrrrssss!
Okay. Thats it.
Oh and you can get a water bear plush at ThinkGeek.
